Academic Resources

Stay informed with Aware magazine

Aware magazine is published quarterly for alums and friends of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary. The magazine includes articles from the president and faculty members, the latest updates on the seminary’s initiatives, as well as donor and student stories.

Is it time for your class reunion?

Each year, we invite the graduating classes from 50 and 25 years ago to join us on campus the week of Commencement. It is always a special time for alums to reconnect with each other and see what their seminary looks like today!
